The Realme GT Neo 2 is scheduled to launch tomorrow i.e October 13th. The phone was announced in China last month and is now making its way to India. This also means that we already have a good idea of what the Realme phone is packing. The company has been tipping the Realme GT Neo 2 specifications on their social media channels. On top of that, the upcoming phone from Realme will likely keep the same specifications from the GT Neo 2’s Chinese variant. The headlining feature of the Realme GT Neo 2 is its Snapdragon 870 chipset that we have seen in the OnePlus 9R, Xiaomi Mi 11X and many more. Let’s look at what else the Realme GT Neo 2 will be offering to stand out in the market.

Realme GT Neo 2: Launch Date, Event Time, Where to Watch It Live

In a tweet, Realme announced that it will launch the Realme GT Neo 2 in India on October 13th. According to a webpage set up by Realme, the Chinese smartphone maker will be hosting a virtual event tomorrow. The Realme GT Neo 2 reveal event will begin at 12:30pm IST. You can watch the livestream on the company’s official YouTube channel and its Facebook page. Rumuors are that Realme will also launch the phone in European markets tomorrow.

Realme GT Neo 2 Expected Price in India

The Realme GT Neo 2 Indian price is not known as of yet. But we can make an educated guess based on its launch price in China. The Realme GT Neo 2 Chinese variant is priced at CNY 2,499 (Rs 29,132) for the 8GB+128GB model. The phone also comes in two other variants: 8GB+256GB and 12GB+256GB which are priced at CNY 2,699 (Rs 31,463) and CNY 2,999 (Rs 34960) respectively. 

If we look at Realme GT Neo 2’s Chinese pricing, you can assume that the launch price in India for the baseline model will be between Rs 25,000 and Rs 30,000. This would also make sense since the Mi 11X also starts at Rs 29,999 for its base model. We will only know the exact price of the Realme GT Neo 2 at its launch event on October 13th.

Realme GT Neo 2 Expected Specifications and Features

Nearly all Realme GT Neo 2 specifications have been leaked before the launch. Let’s take a look at all the features and specifications of the new Realme phone.

Diamond Ice Core Cooling System

One of the most anticipated features of Realme GT Neo 2 is its Diamond Ice Core cooling system. The cooling system offers three-dimensional graphene, customised concave and convex surface covering the heating source. According to the company, this has led to 20% increased heat dissipation capacity. Also, the maximum core temperature on the Realme GT Neo 2 has been reduced by 18 degrees, thanks to the new cooling system. The company says it has increased the heat dissipation area by over 30%. The rapid cooling system will likely offer a boost in gaming performance.

AMOLED Display

Based on information on the teaser page of Realme GT Neo 2, the phone will come with a 120Hz E4 AMOLED display that will offer a peak brightness of 1300 nits. In other words, the phone will be able to get extremely bright. 

As for the screen size, we can take the help of the China variant. The Realme GT Neo 2 will sport a 6.62-inch screen with a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels. The phone will also offer a 600Hz touch sampling rate, which is the highest offered from a company in this price segment.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC

The Realme GT Neo 2 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 5G chipset. It’s an octa-core 7mn processor. This will be coupled with 8GB RAM or 12GB RAM.  Like we said earlier, the chipset is also present in the OnePlus 9R, Mi 11X, Motorola Edge 20 Pro etc. You can expect roughly a similar performance from Realme GT Neo 2. The advanced heat dissipation system might help with the benchmarks, however we will only know that in our in-depth testing of the device.

64MP Triple Rear Cameras

The renders of Realme GT Neo 2 shared by the company shows that the phone will carry a triple camera setup on the back with a 64MP primary camera. The other two are expected to be an 8MP ultrawide camera and a 2MP macro camera. On the front, the Realme phone will likely house a 16MP punch hole camera.

Based on the Chinese variant, the phone will come in three storage options including 128GB 8GB RAM, 256GB 8GB RAM,  and 256GB 12GB RAM. It will also feature an under-display fingerprint, dual stereo speakers, and Android 11-based Realme UI 2.0 out of the box.
